Update: So we had a hard rain yesterday and the window did not leak. So it took replacing the full back window and the 3rd brake light. I the 3rd brake light had to be an updated part as they first to just wanted to silicone it in and I would not let them do that as that is not a factory fix. So I guess ram put out a new design for the 3rd brake light with an extra gasket at the top of the light. So if your 3rd brake light is leaking ask for the updated part.

I took my 2020 in for a leak on the upper right drivers side rear window. He just left me a message that they are replacing the third brake light (TBL). What is the part number for the NEW design with the better gaskets so I can check to see if they are doing me right?

No hurry. Truck is down hard with an oil leak so...

I just took it to the dealer today and they told me they have a revised part that should fix it. They are installing that now. I will give an update if it fixes the problem after the next hard rain. Thanks everyone for the suggestions and I may have to fix it on my own down the road but not why it is still under warranty.
Is the leak fixed?

It can be found a few places, it's a marine type of weather strip with an adhesive on one side


If I had to do it over again I'd use butyl tape instead

Sorry, I'm new here. What is this Home Depot weatherstrip gasket you speak ot?

Members have had leaks and replaced the seal with the above product.

The CHMSL has been updated with a new "dual" seal. The new light and screws (also updated) cost me approximately $40.00, not sure of the cost today. I did not have any leaks but decided to upgrade the light while changing bulbs to LEDS.
